Having taken the tour earlier in the summer, we were intrigued by the setting and grounds of the distillery. We returned on a lovely day to be met by what can only be described as parking wardens in plaid... Staff within the distillery are courteous and polite. The wardens were too, up to the point where we were informed that unless we wanted to take another tour we were unable to park anywhere near the distillery. They had paid for a lay by to which non tour visitors are directed. This was full so we had to drive further half mile away and walk back. Despite at least a dozen spaces available in the car park we were moved on. Polite, yes....hospitable....you decide. A birthday and anniversary were on our shopping list and malt was the order of the day. Suffice to say this experience left us feeling a bit undervalued...so we drove on and enjoyed Deanston in Doune instead. No yellow lines here for non tour customers and a fine coffee bothy to relax whilst deciding on our purchases.
